Melbourne based artist Sean Morris creates some fantastically dark, weird, culty and downright bad-ass works involving sword wielding maidens, motorcycling harpies, and alligator riding vixens. He recently released a beautiful Risograph print ‘Heirlooms’ (featured above), curated a show around a King Brown Magazine issue 10 in NYC and even painted an immense mural for Jack Rabbit Slims, a nightclub in Perth, AUS. A self publisher as well, Morris has printed many killer zines and recently collaborated on a SICK skateboard with Surprise Skateboards in the US. While he was visiting in Los Angeles, we had a chance to catch up as well as chat a bit about his background, influences and favorite Vans.
